Place finally got back to me and quoted me $4700 to replace SMG pump. It is about the same to do the manual swap although that may require a new clutch / flywheel setup, which would be an additional $1400. I called another place (reputable shop) who said $3500 for the SMG pump. I told the first place stop trying to rip me off. We'll see what happens.
